If you follow the NLI on social media, you can expect content covering some or all of the following:

• Information about our collections and services. 
• Information about events taking place at the NLI. 
• Occasional tweets about external events / initiatives that we feel may be of interest to our followers. 
• Alerts about new content on our website.
• Other practical information on the work of the NLI.

We monitor the NLI social media during normal working hours (Monday to Friday), and endeavour to respond to any queries from users within 24 hours. However, we may not be able to reply individually to all the messages and comments we receive. The best means of communicating a query to the National Library of Ireland is by emailing info@nli.ie

We welcome comments and interactions on the NLI Facebook page. However, please note that:
• Any offensive or inappropriate comments / content will be removed.

We welcome comments, messages and interactions on the NLI Instagram feed and stories. However, please note that:

RTs are not endorsements; if we RT something, it is because we feel it is of potential interest to our followers.
